Viewsonic Universal Display: More Than A MonitorUniversal Display with 10-point multitouch, an ARM processor, and wireless capabilities makes a versatile companion for phones, tablets, and laptops. Check out our video of the display in action at CES 2012.
So, for example, you can mirror the content from your tablet, and control it using the touch interface on the display (see a demonstration of some of these capabilities in the video embedded below). You can also plug a keyboard and mouse into it, making it a bit like a docking station.
It includes VGA, HDMI, and two USB ports, and it has a dual hinge, which lets users adjust the height, but also flip it over into tabletop mode. It's also Windows 8 ready, whatever that may mean. But all of this does come at a price: $599. Not bad, though, for such a versatile system.

Viewsonic also demonstrated a 22-inch display that is far less versatile. It is only a dual-point touch screen, and provides VGA, HDMI and audio. Its price: $299.
